I still would. :P I prefer her original version and I love the double CD set of all her early material ("Shout - the complete Decca recordings") before Mickie Most made her too poppy.
This is a good one, originally recorded in 1966;

The film was fairly radical when it debuted. I went to see it a couple of times when it came out. I loved it.

It certainly captures a moment in time when the U.S. was in cultural turmoil and the U.K. had a completely different perspective -- thanks to their completely different history. Yet, with our shared values, it worked. It still works. :)
